Too Faced Whos Your Poppy Blush

Too Faced Cosmetics’ Who’s Your Poppy Blush

I’m this close to putting my beloved/beat up pan of NARS Orgasm out to pasture for the summer and replacing it with Too Faced Cosmetics Who’s Your Poppy Full Bloom Ultra Flush Blush ($19).

Too Faced Who's Your Poppy?


More than just a’ight, this peachy pink’s a powder blush hidden gem! — and if you haven’t tried it yet, I hope you will, ’cause I believe it’s the bomb.

It’s as if some intrepid makeup lover at Too Faced HQ took a pan of NARS Orgasm, added a little more pink to it and gave it a softer golden shimmer.

BOOM! Take that. Who’s Your Poppy now, blush!? πŸ™‚

Too Faced Who's Your Poppy?

Sometimes with NARS Orgasm, I think its pearly golden shimmer takes over my looks. It’s like, dayum, Gina! You got hit by the glitter truck.

Who’s Your Poppy isn’t like that. Instead of kicking down the door with steel-toed boots screaming, “HEY, Y’ALL, LOOK AT MY PORES!” its golden pearl tip-toes through the tulips on ballet slippers. It’s still shimmery…but think brunch shimmer, as opposed to bachelorette party.

The finely milled, pigmented powder doesn’t just look like it’s sitting on top of my skin. I buff one or two layers on my cheeks with a regular blush brush, and I’m good to go, gently shimmering about my day with a peachy pink golden flush.

If you get a chance, give it a try one of these days with a nude lipstick or gloss for a really pretty, girl-next-door flush. Consider Too Faced Mocha Freeze Sweet Shines Gloss, MAC Big Baby Plushglass, Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Candy Shimmer or Dolce & Gabbana Gentle Monica Lipstick.

The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorite permanent collection products from a variety of bodacious beauty brands.

If NARS Orgasm is your club blush, then Who’s Your Poppy could be your mid-week lunch date with your best work bud.

Natural with a kick!

Who’s Your Poppy lives in the permanent line, and you can find it at Too Faced counters and online. πŸ™‚

He’s “healthy”

My mom calls him “big-boned.” The vet says he’s “a sturdy cat.”


If I had a dime for every time someone used code to describe Tabs…

Today I heard a new phrase, “healthy.” A notary came by today because we had to sign some papers and said, “he’s a very healthy cat,” which I’m pretty sure is code for “your cat is husky.”

The object of my oppression…

Oh, sweet tabby…. All 20 pounds of you.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    The thought of putting away my NARS Orgasm makes me a little itchy but now I feel like I MUST try this Too Faced gem. And you also made me pull out a mirror to check my blush while frantically thinking “did I get hit by a giant glitter truck? Are my pores enormous???”. HAHA!

    That’s too funny about Tabs. At least your commenters have some tact. πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      I know you are a NARS Orgasm fan… I think you’ll like this one too. It’s got that same healthy flush action. πŸ™‚

      Is it Friday yet?! What are you doing this weekend? Any sports events for the kids?

      • Kim says:

        I feel like I’m going to like the Too Faced flush. πŸ™‚

        Hey! Good news! It’s FRIDAY! πŸ™‚ We have a baseball game tonight and a grad party on Sunday but I’m hoping Saturday will remain a “free day”. How about you guys? Any plans? Did you say if you saw Man of Steel? Maybe we’ll do that on Saturday!

  7. Danielle says:

    So cute! I never got the whole NARS Orgasm thing, though. I have it and I’ve only used it a few times. This blush sparks my interest a bit more.

    That looks so beautiful. I’m going to have to check it out, thanks for the heads up!

  9. GKitty says:

    Oooh, that IS one pretty blush! You know, no matter how many times I’ve swatched it, I still haven’t succumbed to NARS Orgasm… well, not in the über-sparklecorn powder version, anyhow. (The Multiple in Orgasm, though, is totes workable, and makes a great layer under a non-Orgasm powder blush.)
    For my peachy-pink takes on powder blush, I’ve got an older Smashbox Blush Rush in Chiffon (pretty, very subtle sparkle), and just last weekend, I picked up Kat Von D’s Everlasting blush in Bellisima (oooooh, teh pretty!!). πŸ™‚

    And, um, yeah… healthy, husky, & oh-so-huggable Tabs. (Or, as we said about our first boycat, “successful”. πŸ˜€ )

  10. TrippyPixie says:

    The gold in Orgasm was too much for me, since it didn’t really work with my cool undertones. However, this shade looks quite nice (though I tend to stay away from shimmer on my cheeks because of visible pores).

    Back when I was in Girl Scouts, my troop would have our meetings at my leader’s house. She had a cat named Geronimo, and he was HUGE. Probably around 30 pounds. Every time he jumped up onto the table where we were sitting (which took quite a bit of effort on his part), it would creak really loudly.

  11. Jenn S. says:

    We like to say that our semi-husky Golden Retriever, Ella, is bootylicious, lol! Maybe Tabs is the feline version of bootylicious?! πŸ˜‰

  12. Anitra says:

    I got the too faced loves sephora palette for my bday and it has this blush!!! Going to try it tomorrow !!

  13. Lauren says:

    The blush is gorgeous, but what are the eyeshadows you’re wearing? I’m obsessed!

  14. julie says:
